Bins and Boxes
If you need a new Blue Box, Green Bin or kitchen container, you can pick one up at the local municipal office, the Orangeville Operations Centre, or the County office at 55 Zina Street, Orangeville
If one of your containers is broken, bring it in! We'll have it recycled and give you a new one for free. Extra containers are also available for a fee.
There will be no curbside collection on the following holidays:
- Canada Day July 1, 2013
- Civic Holiday August 5, 2013
- Labour Day September 2, 2013
- Thankgiving October 14, 2013
- Christmas Day December 25, 2013

Collections for the day of the holiday and the rest of the week will be shifted to one day later.
The use of a waste enclosure to store garbage, Blue Boxes, and Green Bins at the end of your lane is permitted in rural areas.
The enclosure must have a flag, similar to a mailbox, in order to notify collection staff if there are materials to be picked up. The flag should be at least 2 inches by 4 inches and painted red. Collection staff will not stop if they do not see a red flag.
The location of all enclosures must be approved by Dufferin County Waste Services.
